Since human resource management and compliance with the variety of state and federal labor regulations are not taught in the typical dental school curriculum, doctors often find themselves in court regarding employment issues. Such lawsuits can be emotionally draining and financially devastating. Dealing wisely and effectively with complex employment issues can be particularly challenging and personnel issues are a major source of stress for most practitioners. This can come in various forms such as: employee pay, benefits (vacation, sick, medical, retirement, etc.), sexual harassment issues, leave of absence, pregnancy, hiring, and termination, just to name a few. Managing employees in a post-pandemic environment is also challenging. This presentation delves deeply into how to easily apply proven, professional personnel management techniques to some of the many common personnel problems to help take the risk out of being an employer/manager and ensure employment law compliance.
- Determine your degree of potential exposure and liability
- Ensure compliance with State and Federal employment regulations
- Define rights and responsibilities of employer and employees
